People plant trees for many reasons: landscaping, shade, privacy, bird watching, spring blooms, fall color. Trees are the most special of all plants. They are majestic, and with proper care, they endure far beyond our lifetimes.
Recently, a customer and his wife had us install a Prunus Serrulata Kwanzan (Kwanzan Cherry) and a Cercis Canadensis Alba (Eastern Whitebud) as a memorial to the man's deceased father, and to their late son. We also included beautiful, heavyweight, cast bronze plaques, drilled into and mounted on specially-selected boulders, tastefully-placed beneath each person's memorial tree in the couple's expansive gardens.
We've also had younger couples purchase a tree for each of their children, who can then watch it grow and mature as the child does.
And that may indeed be the best reason to plant a tree. They remind us of kinfolk long gone, of our youth, newborn children and of how Nature sustains us despite our human frailties. Trees are long-lived. They exude a sense of survival, and they link us to our past.
Over the years, we've helped many people realize a living memorial to a family member or friend or schoolmate, by carefully selecting and installing a tree which symbolizes that person's thoughts and feeling, as well as reflecting the personality of the person they wish to memorialize, either living or deceased.
